Disease Proof?


I just finished this book... it was interesting, you should consider checking it out at the library. But if you want me to sum it up for you and save you hours of reading time, here's the gist of his message:

1. Dairy and meat are bad (he says cancer, ADD, ear infection, asthma and eczema causing even, from cited studies).
2. We (Americans) are killing ourselves with fast food.
3. Plant based diets are good, especially fruits, vegetables, nuts and beans.
4. Breastfeed! It's good for you and your baby.

Although I am ready to take my family totally off of all things animal derived, there were some things to think about here. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Jennifer,
I haven't read the book, so I am not sure how they approach the meat and dairy and how they are "bad" for you. But I know in my research that dairy is bad for you IF it is processesd, because all the good nutrients that helps us digest it are killed when they process it so our system doesn't know what to do with it. And the meats are bad if they are not grass fed or range fed. If they are grain fed, like all store bought meat is, then the meats are not good for us. I know I eat a lot less meat then I used to and only have milk on my granola or processed through my kefir. When we get our farm I want to raise cows so we can have fresh, raw milk and grass fed beef. It sounds like it might be a good book, I might have to check it out.
